Bottle with an English pint glass, at 44 degrees F. This just sounded too good, it was described to me as a REAL COFFEE flavored porter. Meaning, you can tell it’s coffee and not chocolate that smells somewhat like coffee. So I bought one. Pours a deep dark brown leaning towards red. A beautiful light mocha colored, frothy head which leaves beautiful lacing. The aroma... I am thinking I’m in a really yuppie coffee bar. Unsweetened Chocolate, REAL Coffee (yes you can tell!), and hints of vanilla, mint and malts. This is one of those aromas that says... "DRINK ME NOW! I REALLY TASTE GOOD". The first sip was excellent. Pure Coffee, and Chocolate, with the malts, and a slight alcohol. There were also hints of vanilla and to a lesser degree mint as well. The feeling was not thick, not thin, but just right. The lingering coffee and chocolate along with the warming from the alcohol are perfectly blended. The finish is a bit dry, leaving you wanting another sip. Next time I am craving a Mocha Frappacino, I am stopping at the liquor store instead! DEFINITELY a stock item in my beer cellar!

It was fantastic beer for me! Falled in love with first sip!
Aroma didn’t promise something special, but first sip... mmm... So balanced- not dry, not too sweet. I love coffee! LordSierra (20) - Getafe, SPAIN - MAY 18, 2016

The bottle it comes is is very funky, like a olive oil bottle or something. Holds less beer than a typical bottle, unfortunately. Tastes awesome though, really nothing holding it back at all.

If I only had one choice to choose from for my cigar, without a doubt I would go with a Meantime. Amazing complexity combined with strong notes of coffee and chocolate. Gehbe (451) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 16, 2016
Pours very dark brown with a big creamy and steady dark tan head. Rich aroma of coffee, toffee, cream, bread crust, prunes, a hint of raisins and spice. Taste: medium to high sweetness with light roasty acidity/bitterness. Medium body and carbonation, creamy texture, almost no stickiness. A very drinkable porter with a rich aroma and great looks!

big coffee, rum, prune and red wine flavor that is burnt with hit of acid. acrid brew that begs for a cigarette (and is not going to get it). foamy, fothy and full of really good coffee flavor. i suppose i am disqualified because i probably enjoy coffee more than beer. yet still smooth and... just sweet slick and a touch creamy... this shit could be crack to a lot of of people. oldgrowler (14) - USA - FEB 24, 2011
This is the best of the coffee-styles I’ve tried. The only points I’d take away is for the sour aftertaste after a while. Otherwise roasty and pure, with unique smokiness in aroma as well as taste. Uniquely also, not malty, but dry and bright finish. Very pleasant, very satisfying Erzengel (9334) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2014
Schöner süßliche Porter-Geruch, dunkle Schokolade. Der Antrunk ist süffig-dickflüssig. Schöne cremige Schoko-Note. Im Hauptteil vollmundig, dunkel Schokolade mit einem Haus Espresso. Schön samtig-cremig. Der Nachgeschmack ist schön röstmalzig-angenehm, süßlich-trocken und rund abgewogen. Die tollen Schoko-Espresso-Noten halten sich schön lange auf der Zunge.
Tolles Bier, bei dem aber von dem Kaffee nicht zu viel zu spüren ist. 15/12/14/15
